Roast butternut squash, sweet potatoes, carrots and onion in the oven before turning them into a soup. The flavor is amazing!
1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
2. Line 2 or 3 baking sheets with foil. Divide squash, potatoes, carrots and onion between baking sheets. Drizzle oil, salt and pepper over the veggies. Toss veggies to coat. Roast until lightly brown, about 25 minutes. Stir veggies around the 15-minute mark.
3. In a soup pot, combine oven roasted veggies and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer for 15 minutes.
4. Puree the soup using an immersion blender or a blender, working in batches. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Bring soup back up to a simmer.
5. In a skillet, toast pine nuts. Remove nuts from skillet. Spray skillet with cooking spray. Over a medium heat, saute apple cubes for 3 minutes. Set aside.
6. When soup is ready, ladle into bowls and top with pine nuts, apples and parsley.
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
